These are cracking me up. Eventually, I’ll get tired of posting them, but not yet.
And you know, if I can get serious for a minute, here’s why I turn this shit into posts sometimes. An old friend of mine, who’s never seemed quite on board with the it’s-okay-to-be-fat stuff but tolerates it because she’s known me for 20-odd years, e-mailed me today and said, “Kate, I read some of the online comments on CNN. I see now why the world needs you to speak out. Please keep it up.” Of course, I do not recommend that anyone read comments at CNN, YouTube, Broadsheet, etc., for just that reason — but seeing the level of “discourse” around anything fat-related can be a real eye-opener for those who don’t get just how nasty and sophomoric the weight bigots routinely are. (Or that they never know the difference between “your” and “you’re.”)
With that, Douchemail the Second:
Subject: You’re very uplifting CNN appearance!
Sucked balls. Now I know how you really look and sound like. Ugh! Very unattractive.
Heart disease (I’m just around the corner and I’m going to get you fatty!)
